CW’s “The Flash” Has Snagged Clancy To Play Major Recurring Villain!

Posted on Aug 10, 2014 in News, TV

The Hollywood Reporter has just announced that Clancy’s been cast in the CW Arrow spin off  The Flash as General Wade Eiling, aka The General, in a pivotal recurring role.  According to the Hollywood Reporter press release, The General is the head of a black ops army team pursuing Plastique (played by Kelly Frye) in the hopes of using her as a human weapon. He’s described as a tall and imposing man, with “a face carved from years of duty.” Eiling is fanatically intent on protecting American interests around the world and may have ties to a central Flash character.  

It should be noted that in the DC universe, Eiling has been around since 1987 and has played both friend and foil to the Justice League.  He also stole a secret serum and made himself the DC Comics equivalent to The Hulk at one point, though we have no way of knowing if that’s the route The Flash intends to take with the character. Clancy is also no stranger to the DC universe; for over fifteen years he’s been the definitive voice of Lex Luthor in Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League Unlimited as well as several other animated films and the Lego Batman franchise.  He’s also voiced many other memorable DC heavies such as Parallax in the feature film Green Lantern, Gorilla Grodd, Mr Freeze, Bane, Big Time, General Immortus, Zartok, Rohtul, and Per Degaton, to name but a few! Despite The General’s popularity and wide breadth within multiple DC universes, this is the first time he’s ever been portrayed in live action. Congrats, Clancy!
